We stayed one nightght to attend a dinner party held in one of the banquet rooms. The food for the dinner was excellent with several choices and the service was good and the price was very reasonable. After the party we went to the comfortable lounge which has a surprisingly good band fridays and saturdays. Drinks were very reasonable for a bar with live entertainment.
The hotel staff were friendly and attentive and room rate was resonable with a winter special rate.
The "newly renovated" room however, was a disappointment. It was not in the impressive main building but in an old motel next door with outside hallways When we checked in the room was so cold we had to wear jackets. We waited three hours with the heater on high to shower but it was still uncomfortably cold. Then the bathtub wouldn't drain so you had to stand in a pool of shower water. When we got up the following morning it had finally drained. You had to hold down the handle on the toilet to get it to flush. The room had finally warmed up by 1am. The remote for the tv didn't work. The room only has 2 table lamps for light so it is too dark to find anything in your suitcase without taking it over in front of the window.
We would hold a party there again for sure, and it is nice to have a restaurant in the hotel but i would try one of the other better reviewed places next time if i just needed a room.
